These rare terracotta vases reflect the Swedish taste for French and Italian neoclassical and Empire furniture which had such a profound impact on the interior decoration in Northern Europe.

Built in the late 17th century, Skottorp Castle was purchased by the Commercial Councillor Peter Moller around 1815, and completely redecorated by the architect and Court Intendant Carl Fredrik Sundvall (1754-1831) between 1816-1828, resulting in some of the finest Empire interiors in Sweden. The design for these vases is in all probability attributable to Sundvall, who designed all the elements in the castle's salon.
